    chinese mandarin duck

    Have just come back from a weekend away at symonds yat with some freinds . We went for a bit of canoning down the river wye and i counted at least 10 mandarin ducks in a 7 mile streach of river . Also at home i have seen them on the river teme . On the RSPB website it puts the population at about 7000 in the uk . I think there could be a few more than that , has anyone else noticed there presence ? The RSPB: Mandarin

    We see a few now. On the river, flight ponds and this year on a peat pond on the moor.

    On one of my shoots in East Sussex there are a few pairs mainly in the little ponds in the woods, really lovely birds.
    I have been seeing them on and off for about 10 years, although not so much lately.

    We have lots of them on the pond in our back garden. We've bred quite a few over the last five years or so.
